BAV (Belden Audio/Video) Power and Audio Cables

In addition to the Iconoclast range of products, we offer some specialty cabling based in some cases upon Belden commercial and industrial cable products and in others upon adaptation of the Iconoclast design work to more conventional materials with higher flexibility.

BAV Power:

For power cables, we use Belden's 19105, 19106 and 19107 cable stocks, with EPDM insulation and high-flex 10, 12 and 14 AWG conductors. These are available with a US-type duplex plug on one end and either an IEC C15 or an IEC C19 connector (see photo below to compare to your power input) on the other. Our plugs are housed in a sturdy aluminum backshell which provides ample room for these very thick cable stocks.

The EPDM insulation on the cable provides a nice matte black finish. However, if you prefer a woven nylon jacket, we also can cover these in Techflex -- either in black or in a sandy light brown -- for a slight upcharge.

Plug Choices:

Here are the C15 and C19 plug layouts. The C15 is on the left, and is the more commonly seen type; the C19 is on the right.

BAV Power Cables:
All terminated with standard US 3-prong (NEMA 5-15P) plug on one end, IEC C15 or C19 on the other

Along with the development of the Iconoclast XLR cable, Galen Gareis worked up a more studio-friendly version. This was to be marketed by Belden under the product number 2468, though that seems not to have happened and so for the time being, at least, we're the only ones who have it. The BAV XLR cable uses the same air-tube design as the Iconoclast XLR, but the materials are more flexible and conventional. A soft PVC jacket makes the cable easier to work with and it will "drape" in situations where the Iconoclast will not. This softer configuration does not lend itself to the 4x4 design -- trying to keep those barely-separated conductors apart in a high flex cable is not really feasible -- so the BAV cable follows the original 4x1 design.

Just as the Iconoclast XLR has a BAV counterpart, so does the Iconoclast RCA. The BAV RCA cable uses the same PE/PVC materials as the BAV XLR cable, but with a single conductor in one air tube rather than a star quad in four air tubes. Like the Iconoclast RCA, it carries a double bare copper braid shield. We terminate this cable using Canare solder-type RCA plugs.

BAV 1313A Speaker Cable:

This last BAV offering is not based upon an Iconoclast design -- rather, it's a simple two-conductor OFHC speaker cable, great either for general-purpose use or as a "control" cable for listening evaluation. While we are not usually the sort who "dress up" cables, in this case we've wrapped it in techflex nylon braid and heat-shrinked the ends for a fancier-than-bare appearance. Presently it's available with banana plugs; welded spade lugs (both for this and for Iconoclast) will be coming shortly.
